Honestly speaking it is
Only fans are gonna suffer
Disgusting to say the least
What a shame 👎🏻— ADNAN (@xtylishadnan786) September 17, 2021
Morally, ethically and professionaly,
its the duty of @BLACKCAPS and #NewZealand government to disclose the details of the threat they received because Pakistani authorities has no such information. #NZ had more security then they could even dream off...#PAKvNZ
lol, that makes sense ?!
Next time, if a country is not getting international matches for security reasons, COVID19 or IPL, Pakistani team shouldn't be the first to act nice. Go to the country, stay for a few days and then make excuses to not play the series.#PAKvNZ— Najam Sahibzada (@SMNajam) September 17, 2021
Or in other words, Hypocrisy
After attack on Bangladesh team in New Zealand and attack on a mosque in Christchurch, Pakistan was the first team to tour New Zealand. we showed the world that New Zealand is safe to play but this behaviour of @BLACKCAPS is totally unacceptable.#PAKvNZ— Shakil Ahmad Khan🇵🇰 (@shakilehmadkhan) September 17, 2021
Fans are the real losers in the end
#PAKvNZ such a disappointment to see PM @jacindaardern cancelling the tour over security threats. A sport that is widely enjoyed by millions across the globe is again being given in to a state is ready to welcome the players be insight of security.— Maliha Barry (@BarryMaliha) September 17, 2021
